It’s a week of acquisitions and arguments surrounding the National Broadband Network. What went on?
The National Broadband Network Company this week entered into a deal with iiNet to purchase a Canberra-based fibre network once owned by TransACT. ZDNet reports that the deal is immediately worth $9 million, but could be worth up to $14 million subject to approvals.
The Australian reports that the souring of the Syntheo deal has dealt quite a blow to one of the members of the consortium, beating its share price around with a stick.
We’re also asking you this week exactly which NBN plan you prefer. We’ve got a poll up, but if you’re not into that sort of thing you can always just go and have a chat in the comments with your fellow reader.
Finally, there are people in rural Australia who presumably want the NBN but not the infrastructure that goes with it.
